Pastor Joshua, Lead Pastor

Our lead pastor, Pastor Joshua James, came to Lion of Judah in 2005 after a divine/God encounter with Rabbi K.A. Schneider in a men’s clothing store in Toledo, OH. One of his primary callings is to lead/direct worship at Lion of Judah and believes music has the power to usher in the Presence of God, remove darkness/the Enemy and connect people to intimacy with Jesus!

One of his favorite quotes comes from a brain surgeon from Memphis, Tenn. “…after 25 years of working on the brain, I still cannot effect people’s minds the way one simple song can.” God-centered-music (which can be found at Lion of Judah every service) can and will change your life for the better!

Pastor Joshua can be found preaching, teaching, leading worship and he helps executive produce the Lion of Judah TV show seen on Thursdays at 9:30 PM and Sunday mornings at 9:30 AM on WLMB TV 40.

He loves his wife Jessica and has one boy named Shiloh and two girls, River Lynn and Arrow Bella, who he also loves very much.
